Holiday Inn Express Poughkeepsie
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Poughkeepsie
Reviewed February 1, 2007

The last time I rated this hotel I gave it a 5. A few things have changed since then: I've become more experienced with business travel and this time there were a few heavy score impacting problems.

The hotel continues to be well suited for business travelers. It's conveniently located, serves a handy, complimentary breakfast, has a competent, friendly staff, wireless Internet connectivity, a small fitness center and is generally clean. Mattresses are comfortable but bedding is not of the quality found in many hotels today. Bathroom hardware is beginning to show age.

On the down side, the comforter is my room was stained with wine and the sheets were discolored. Housekeeping completely refreshed the bed as soon as I notified them. My room was an adjoining room, and the closed door between the rooms was not insulated well enough against sound to prevent me from hearing my noisy neighbor's cell conversations. Dirty bedding and noise are score killers in my mind.

The room was clean, beds and service fine, but the cost was out of line for the area. Especially because 2 weeks later I stayed at a much nicer hotel, a few miles south of there and paid half as much. This hotel is very near Marist and Vassar colleges and I guess that's why they feel they can charge so much.
My suggestion, look a little further south and get a much better deal!

If we ever return to the Hudson River Valley, we will definitely stay here again. Good location, excellent shopping and restaurants nearby, as well as attractions. More importantly, the service at this hotel was excellent, the staff friendly, the breakfast was very good, the rooms clean and well-maintained.

I recently stayed at this hotel due to its convenient location. I pulled into the parking lot and initially thought the outside of the building was old looking and thought the inside would be the same. I could not be more wrong! The lobby was warm, inviting and very clean. The woman who checked me in was very professional and friendly. She informed me that the hotel was actually getting a new exterior this Fall..Hmmm and a new lobby, I said why this lobby is great. My room was very nice, looked brand new, great pillows, even better bathroom, the shower was great the towels thick and new looking. My so called continental breakfast turned out to have a cheese omlet and bacon! I even got to enjoy it outside on the patio. Over all this was the best Holiday Inn Express I had ever stayed in. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has to go to Poughkeepsie.

A sign in the lobby announced this property will be undergoing a full renovation in the fall of 2005, but I think it is already the nicest Holiday Inn Express I have ever seen. We had a king room with a sofa bed, on the non-highway side of the hotel that was quite pleasant. Everything appeared clean and in good repair, except one lamp that should be replaced. There was some hallway noise, but I have learned to turn up the A/C fan to drown out the noisy guests. There were three different pillow types on the bed to ensure you get the type you like. A hairdryer and iron were standard. There was a microwave for guest use in the vending area. The bathroom had a spacious layout, and an attractive sink area with a separate upper shelf for the coffeemaker (which just makes sense!) The shower curtain was a bright white woven cloth variety that contributed to the spotless appearance of the bathroom. The towels were thick, and the toiletries somewhat unique. The lobby area was attractive and offered some board games for wholesome fun as well as a high speed Internet-connected PC for guest use. The continental plus breakfast offerings were extensive, but there was a wait for the four-slice toaster. I thought the desk staff could use a few pointers in customer service. They weren’t rude, but weren’t overly welcoming either. I used my Priority Club points to stay here at no charge, but I thought the rack rate was outrageous for a non-full service or extended stay hotel. I would put this property in the “nice place to stay if somebody else is paying” category.

This hotel costs more than the Sheraton in Newark NJ Airport.

For that cost the room was smaller, cold and hard to heat up (the heater had to be on full all the time). The hotel looked old on the outside, but inside the room was nice looking. Bedsheet were of a low thread count and felt rough on the skin.

The staff was friendly, the wireless network was free and worked well. The much balleyhooed shower was indeed nice, but I don't think it made up for high cost.

We stayed on a Sunday to Monday and the parking lot was almost empty.

Next time I will try the Super 8 in Pough, it looks newer.
